      baratp,
      When you go into the edit mode, if there are no 'Warnings' in a yellow box (in the upper right corner) then wait a couple of days. This is the normal approximate time to wait for a Hub to be featured. When it is featured then it will show up in your profile window.

      I need to explain something to you. HubPages gives you the chance to gain experience as a writer by ensuring that they are not full of unnecessary terms & conditions and other hidden rules like other platforms that you may be aware of.
      I can see your hub is not featured and this shows that something is seriously wrong. If your hub is less than 700 words, i'd urge you to do some more research and retry. Otherwise, hope by the learning centre where you'll find some of the best tips on article writing.

      Hi #baratp, we have all had to hit those bumps.  I know full well. 

      You will get an email and it will give you links of that you should be reading to make your hubs better.  I am in the process of doing that just now.

      And there is another thing.  google is involved in releasing the latest Panda update, and according to the more experienced hubbers, that will get in the way of the normal schedules.

      Go read those pages on the Learning Centre pages, review and re-submit, however many times it takes.

      Another thing that might be of help is to read hubs from the ones who have been doing well - you'll note the high rating and the large no of followers!  tongue That will show you what we are aiming for, you, me, and many other newbies like us.smile

      All the best. . .

      Is it still not published? Because in that case it is better to contact the HubPages team

    Just don't worry a lot; if your hub passes the HP's Quality Assessment then it will get featured; your hub is still pending due the assessment...read this hub for more http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Featured-Hubs

      okay..i just checked it out that it is published..so it implies that i need to publish atleast 5 good hubs before one any being featured?

    It took me several tries before I finally got my first hub published and featured. Keep revising and improving. Watch the little goals box in the upper right of your editing screen, and try to hit as many of those goals as you can.

    Give it 24 hours for some human eyes to look at it and it will either be featured or not featured.   We have to go through this while we are in boot camp for out first 5 hubs.

    Did you match some of the guidelines given to you on the right box? It says something like: 700 words, 800 words, 1000 words etc. I get at least 4 checkmarks in the box and usually the article is feature-published.

      Yes, I could read your hub. If it isn't featured, it is either taking awhile to go through the quality assessment process or you need to check it for typos. I found a few. Best of luck and welcome to Hubpages.

        Are you sure it isn't featured. Look on your account page and see if there is a H behind it. If so, it is featured already. The H will be on the far right column. Don't look on your Profile page, but your Account page.

    Nop; not until it's featured; but I think it can be found through the search engines...

    1. psycheskinner profile image82

      The other way around. 

      Published hubs are available online and people can see them if they find a link to them or type in the url of the hub

      Featured hubs are published hubs that can also be found and indexed by search engines and so found by people using search engines.

    It probably is featured because people with less then 5 hubs have their unfeatured hubs unpublished.

    I just looked at your hub. It seems there are a number of places where your sentences are running together without spaces. Be sure to proofread for typos. HP would see these as spelling errors. You might want to copy and paste the text into a word document and run a spelling and grammar check.

      I checked and I didn't see it. Maybe you took it down to change it? You didn't have to take it down or delete it, you just go in edit mode to change what you want. I hope it works out.

    Quality issues may be a photo too. Try to use high quality - non blur photos in your Hubs. Also read what is written in the Tips at the top of your Hub when you edit it.
    About the first 5 Hubs I have only read that they are the only which are read and judged by real people and then the other only pass throught the quality program that the website have

      Usually in the edit mode it warns you if your picture is blurry, if you couldn't see it yourself.

        Yes, in the edit mode you have everything you need to do to make your Hub better. But newbe sometimes don' tnotice it ^^ I have not noticed it the first time I wrote my article. At the 4th article I noticed that tiny window on the right and the messages at the top once you saved your Hub.
